UNITED we STAND.....DIVIDED we FALL.

This is a rant...just letting you know before you read too far...I hope no one takes it personally if you do well then I am sorry..but I too have a view point.  And this is my blog...so here goes

To all those congressmen and women, to all the senators....How DARE YOU...

What you have done this weekend is show me that you are above reproach...you are untouchable.  How do we the people hold you accountable for the civil unrest you helped to create?  Our country swore in our...key word...OUR president...and you ...repeat...YOU our supposed Leaders...boycotted?  What message did you send to the world....I ask you this....How do we the people punish you for such childlike behavior?   How do we hold you accountable for saying to  unhappy people that is ok to rally....to protest...to say and do hateful and violent things if you don't get your way?    By doing what you did on January 20, 2017...there will be consequences..what they will be I do not know....I am wondering if I had protested Obama or if groups of protester,  rich white movie stars, movie makers...had rallied and protested our last president on his day of taking the highest office in our country...would you have been so tolerant?   Probably not....I would have been labeled a racist..for sure.....Let me tell you this Mr. Congressman/Senator...you have set an example of child like behavior..I want to put you in time out..I want to fire you from you JOB...I use that word lightly...Your Job is to work for this nation..not to further your political agenda...So if these protests get out of hand..if they get violent..I am going to blame you...If people get hurt or jailed..I am going to blame you...What you did tells me you think you are above Reproach...there is nothing we the people can do to punish you for your actions...is there?   You have set the example..you have cleared the path...you are responsible for whatever follows..

Ok .....now for the protesters.....REALLY?    We as a country voted...He TRUMP is our president...all those protest are really meaningless...you cannot change the outcome of the election...You are protesting the very behavior you are exhibiting...HATE...Intolerance...Judgemental  You have become the very face of the ideas you are protesting....You are creating the division you are protesting.  And to the people who are listening to the rich white men and women spewing their words into a microphone..believe you me...those people do not pump their own gas..they do not shop at Walmart to save money..they live in multi million dollar homes...they wear designer clothes..but yet they FEEL your pain..at the pump..at the grocery store..when the light bill comes in..I bet they don't have to decide if they are sick enough to go to the dr...because their deductible is so high...Yeah If you are listening to them...and worse yet believing them...then I am sorry....I am sorry that the words coming out of a millionaire's mouth that is preaching hate, that is intolerant..that is judgemental makes you feel better....

So People...if you are still here reading my rant,please please...I ask that while you may have not voted for Trump...he is our president...he is the leader of this country...and now it is time to put on the big girl panties..chin up..shoulders back..and be proud of our country..and stand behind our president...stop believing everything you hear and see on the news...do some research..find more than one source of information...do some critical thinking....and make your own decisions..and not follow some movie maker....maybe even take the road less traveled...Because UNITED we STAND...DIVIDED we FALL

Well said. IF all these protesters had voted... perhaps the outcome of the election would have been different. That is what I do not understand. People complaining about a democracy when they did not participate in one of our most important rights.

Absolutely no hateful comments coming from me. I totally agree with you! But, for some reason, folks like you and me, we aren't supposed to say how we feel. It has gotten so ridiculous, almost unbelievable. People say they can't understand who would vote for Trump. I say come out here to the country...the country where the gas and coal industry was taken away, and see how we're living now. My husband's income was cut by more than half. We used to have our insurance provided by the company he worked for. Now he makes far less money, and we have to buy our own insurance. Have to, because if we don't we will be fined. And the insurance we have to pay for covers next to nothing...but it meets the requirements of having insurance. But yet we don't really have "insurance". My husband will be 61 soon, and instead of thinking about retiring, he's wondering how in the world we're going to make it. I could go on and on, but I'll spare you. I know tons of people who voted for Trump, and for good reason. Anyhoo, bravo to you for voicing this!!
